Residential Burglary – 01/27/22

During the overnight hours of Wednesday, January 26th, police were dispatched to a residence on Sherwood Lane for a report of a residential burglary. The residence was accessed by using the garage door opener in an unlocked vehicle parked in the driveway. Several suspects entered the garage and rummaged through the vehicles parked within before fleeing the scene. The residents  were inside their home at the time of the incident, which increases our concerns for this type of situation.

Please lock your vehicles and be aware of the potential access your garage door remote may offer to criminals (especially if it operates the garage door without the vehicle running). If you have an alarm, consider using it and if something seems suspicious, call police to investigate.
